Named after the hardworking neighborhood where the original Grain Belt Brewery established its roots back in 1893. The term Nordeast comes from the Northern and Eastern European immigrants and their language which helped shape Northeast Minneapolis. This amber American Lager is our way of honoring the storied past of Grain Belt and the people who helped to make it legendary! Cheers!

Thanks to swalden28 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma doesnt have much going on other than a heavy dose of grain and sweet malt. The flavor is very similar, with grain and a little bit of fruit, which I cant really identify. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Fairly straightforward and not offensive, but something I cared too much for.

Pours pale copper, white head. Aroma is light grain sugary. Taste is bland toasted pale malt, a grainy dryness. Not the greatest, goes down all the same.

Pours an amber color. Smell is of malts, caramel. Taste is also malty, crisp and refreshing, a touch of hops are present. Overall an easy drinking and pretty good beer.

hotstuff (5050) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2012
Bottled purchased at Sicilianos Market in Grand Rapid, MI in December, 2011 and rated on 4-05-2012. Pours a medium sized smooth off-white head that mostly diminished with spotty amounts of lacing, transparent body, fizzy carbonation, and an orange hue. The Aroma is malty, grain, suggestions of caramel and hops, and crisp. The Flavor is malty, caramel, some hops and a semi-dry short finish. The Mouthfeel is lightly tingly and this is a medium bodied Vienna beer. Overall, could qualify as a session beer, lacks character and the flavor was blase.

Confusing, not bad really butt... kinda reminds me of a cheep malt liqure, I dont think they tried very hard on this and its nothing like a real traditional Nordic beer. not bad however and I agree with others If it were this or the usual boring american pale lager (piss water) beers id easily chose this. now dont get me wrong its not horrible and others may realy enjoy it my opinion although educated is still my opinion, coppery,thin head, nice darker amber color. great carbonation,well balanced for what it is... over all, not sure what to think>

Bought this mostly because we used to live in nordeast. Was pleasantly surprised, though: its not a great beer, but its got some malty body to it, a little bit fruity. Its OK.

steeleliver (130) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Pretty standard amber, notuhing overly exciting. A bit of fruity flavor in the back, palate is just average. Brown gold pour with barely any head. Good cheap option. A bit of sweetness helps.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 The Grain Belt name suffers a blow with this entry. While this beer is OK, one can only feel shame for bringing low the the spotless moniker of this once proud franchise. I would drink this again, if I was out of Hamms, Blatz, grain Belt Premium, and/or Pabst. Otherwise, not so much. Grain Belt should profit by sticking to its cheap roots & quit trying to entice the "beer snob" market. Look what that stategy has done for Blatz: an unsulllied and proud name that brooks no insubordination and is still after 150+ years ON TOP of the Beer pantheon. Dont question it.

A much anticipated release from Schells newly acquired Grain Belt brand... A - looks just as any amber should: amber.... thin head/lacing that doesnt wait around for you. S - smells metallic, very reminiscent of "primo" plus some extra umph... bit more malty. T - tastes decent for what it is... copper, oats, nothing too exciting really. M - feels spot-on, thin but appropriately carbonated. O - overall a decent brew for the price point, perhaps a step up from the run of the mill premium.
